mitt romney raised political da seat and lying into an art form. mr. romney may not win the white house but he should certainly win the toby for best actor in a presidential debate. thanks for watching. "hardball" is next. >>> the day after. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good eke. i'm chris matthews back in washington. let me start tonight with two big questions, "hardball" questions if you will. one, why? why did what happened last night happen? why did a president who has proven himself as a policy expert and world class politician let the other guy take charge? because if he can't answer that question, he may be doomed to defeat in the remaining two debat debates. second big question, can a victory over the facts of last night's debate, what was true and what was not, turn the tables now? can barack obama win by getting out the word he didn't get out last night? and both are big questions tonight that might just decide this presidential election. i'm joined by governor ed rendell and ron reagan, both msnbc analysts. this is a tough blog by a guy who has been very strong for obama ov
the needs and problems of people like them. some of mr. romney's numbers are just shockingly bad. i mean double check. shockingly bad. look at the percentage of swing state voters who say mitt romney's policies will favor the middle class. in florida it's 8%. in ohio it's 9%. in pennsylvania it's 9%. whatever the romney campaign has done to get themselves to this point, whether it's mr. romney's tax returns, or the lack thereof, or getting rich by laying off factory workers or the tape where he says half the country is a bunch of lazy bums and victims who depend on the government and he doesn't care about them. whatever it is that turned their candidate into the 2012 reincarnation of thurston howell except in this reincarnation thurston is mean, whatever it is that has done that it's just killing him in the polls in every state. if the romney campaign does nothing else they must, must, must make sure that nobody anywhere near mitt romney does that rich guy can't relate to people like me thing again. here's the romney campaign last night. >> both mitt and i have summer places up in new ha
win the aftermath even if mr. romney lost the performance battle last night. >>> plus, what's wrong with this picture? the president looking down at his notes is just one of the many images that made last night such a rough one for the president. the great james lipton of inside the actor studio joins us for the review of the theater of politics. who turned out to be the biggest winner? you might think it's this guy but, in fact, it might be this guy, big bird. he lives on sesame street. big bird began trending on twitter just moments after romney said he'd cut off his funding. i guess romney considers big bird a 47%er. a sloucher. >>> my day after review of how that debate could have gone the other way. this is "hardball," the place for politics. wouldn't it be col if we took the nissan altima and reimagined nearly everything in it? gave it greater horsepower and best in class 38 mpg highway... advanced headlights... and zero gravity seats? yeah, that would be cool. ♪ introducing the completely reimagined nissan altima. it's our most innovative altima ever. nissan. innovation tha

tonight will the moderator of the presidential debate will ask mr. romney about the 47 comment. will they ask about this particular video that shows then senator obama showing that the neglect of new orleans was racial. >> down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the staford act and when you get federal matter you have to give a 10 percent match from the local government. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the staford act. they said this is too serious of a problem and we can't expect new york city to lebuild on its own. forget that dollar. that was the right thing to do. what is happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your staford act money? it makes no sense. trust me, the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that the people down in new orleans doesn't care as much. >> steve: you can see it in the entirity in the daily caller.com. he said the people of new orleans got the shaft and people who suffered from 9/11 or

that mr. romney has been at the campaign headquarters in boston preparing. why is the president in nevada? >> well, it's a battle ground state as you've noted earlier and i remember covering john kerry in 2004. a debate against the president, then president bush in arizona and did his debate prep in new mexico, a media attention in the battle ground state and he's trying to do that president obama in nevada and the foreclosure crisis and the unemployment rate double digits and the president knows economic challenges here and hoping he'll get a little play for his message and his plans and rally and it's going to start a few moments behind me with someone with early voting starting in nevada in a couple of weeks and they feel good in the obama camp. nevada even though it's hard hit, the polls show the race very close and they think mitt romney should be far ahead with the economic message and people are hurting here. they think it's a sign that romney is not breaking through and the president is doing pretty well in nevada. >> harris: you bring up a good point. this first debate focusing o

that now, five weeks from the day. with the debate tomorrow mr. romney is hoping to put this into the context of sort of a comprehensive approach gliding into election day, or rather charge into it. his aides yesterday said his first debate is a big opportunity for him to introduce himself to the country. they realize there are three more presidential debates and a vice presidental debate in this final one-month period w. that said there are a whole series of criticisms that mitt romney has been honing against the president for weeks an sampled a little bit of it last night for a denver audience upon arrival in the city to a crowd of 5500. >> we know where the president's pathway lead, because we are on it. we've seen it for four years. we've seen the number of people on food stamps go from 32 million to 47 million. 15million more people having fallen into poverty and needing food stamps. one out of six americans now in poverty. 23million americans looking nor a job. >> reporter: so in addition to facts like that which mr. romney will roll out in tomorrow night's debate
inherented, it was caused by the same policies that mr. romney would take us back to. >> but unemployment is -- the income is down. >> you know, in ohio -- and i'm -- >> but there are 47 other states. unemployment around the country is up. >> there are 49 other states but there are a handful of swing states. and my understanding is looking at the latest polls, that every swing state, perhaps say north carolina -- and that's considered a toss-up -- the president has at least a slight lead. and in some states, like hoirks a very sizeable lead. >> he may have a lead but that doesn't mean unemployment is down there. >> no, it doesn't. well, in our state, unemployment is much improved. we are below the national average. and that's because the president saved the auto industry. that's because the president passed the recovery act. and so we're starting to see here in the midwest, in these manufacturing states, manufacturing come back. the president has provided that kind of leadership. you can't argue with the success that we've experienced here in ohio. but that success, i think, is being seen
two comments. last night the substance, mr. romney, throwing around a lot of comments, is that a good debate? no one had any plans and i have to say the president didn't take credit for some of the things he is doing. and my second question is minorities are very scared of the voter i.d. it's being glossed over that it has happened over and over and i would like you to comment on your polling and if you're involved with any hispanic and black leadership on what's being done to make sure the vote gets out. >> i would disagree with the first part where i thought it was one of the more substantive debates i have seen in a while. you know, and i was watching some of the meters when romney was going through his five- point plan, his numbers went straight up. i thought there was, you know, i don't think it was vague. i don't think they were either vague. i think it was quite a bit of specificity and a lot of substance. but i don't know whether -- >> some of the most substantive debate i can remember in terms of policy and plans and everything in a long, long time. maybe the bar set so low i
was surprised. he's usually much more energetic, he looked tired, and mr. romney, you know, he had his facts at his fingertips. he didn't do anything extraordinary, but he was just much more focused, so the contrast between romney and obama really put the governor over-the-top. i see it as more obama lost it than romney won it. bill: that is interesting. >> i'll tell you why in a moment. bill: before the debate started, you were encouraging romney to be aggressive, to really go for it, and rove and morris were saying to you, no, no, no that is not the way to go. >> right. and romney followed their advice and not mine, and that's where i think he made a mistake. when you're in a prize fight, a boxing match, and that's what a debate is, a verbal boxing match and you see your opponent tired or weak you go in and you hammer him. the governor didn't do that. what the governor should have done at the end when he clearly had won the debate, and he knew he had won, was in his closing statement of two minutes, said, look into the cameron said, i just want you to know that i feel compelled to improve
was where is the substance mr. romney? is that a good debate just throwing around a lot of comments. and i didn't think the spt taking credit for some of the things he's doing. and the second comment i is minority voters are scared of the i.d. i would like to see if you would comment on how you're polling and if you're involved with any of the hispanic leadership about making sure the vote gets out? >> i disagree with the first part. i thought it was a more subs stan tive debate i've seen in a while. and i was watching some of the meters and when romney was going through his five point plan, his numbers went straight up. i thought -- i don't think it was vague, i thought it was a lot of substance. >> it was the most substive debate i can remember in terms of plans in a long time. maybe the bar is set so low it's not hard to get over but i was kind of surprised. >> i guess what is substance these days, especially in the modern debate or communications? i guess my summation would be you had a very good sense of these two yes's philosophy and approach to government. and substance will save it
bucks. mr. romney presenting a choice, four more years of this, or the american people will get to determine what kind of america they want to live in. a mitt romney america or a barak obama america. >> gretchen: so no doubt that the two teams who are preparing both of these candidates are saying a lot of time figuring out, what are the negatives about the other guy or how do you get under the skin of the other guy to make it to your advantage with the american people? so last night charles krauthammer on "special report" had his theory about how mitt romney might be able to get under the skin of president obama. >> i the his one weak point is that he is thin skinned. you occasionally will see it in a press conference and if romney can manage to get under his skin in some way, i think that actually happened in 08 one or two of the clinton debates, i think it could sort of puncture that aura that obama has. one thing that's going to help romney is that simply being on the stage is always true of the challenger. just being on the same stage as the president, instantly raises your

's debate performance. there were also some questions about the moderator, jim lehrer, watch this. >> mr. romney, do you have a question you would like to ask the president directly about something he just said? >> jim, the president began this segment, so i think i get the last word. >> you're going to get the first word in the next segment. >> but he gets the first word of that segment, i get the last word -- >> here's a specific. >> mention the other one, let's talk the big one. >> no, let's not. >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me was -- >> i sometimes wonder if we even need a moderator because we had mitt romney. we should rethink that for the next debate. >> joining us now two journalists from the website dailydownload.com. lauren is the site's founder, editor and chief also former managing editor "usa today" howie is host of cnn's "reliable sources" and washington bureau chief for "newsweek" magazine. he said, this is jim lehrer, part of my moderator position was to stay out of the way of the flow and i had no problems with doing so.
, my reaction to the debate was, where is the substance, mr. romney? you are throwing around a lot of commons. is that a good debate? nobody had any plans. the president did not take credit for some of the things he is doing. second, minority communities are very scared of the voter i.d. is being glossed over that it has happened over and over again in elections. could you comment on how you are polling, and if you are involved with the hispanic and black leadership to make sure the vote gets out? >> i would disagree with the first part. i thought it was one of the more substantive debates i have seen in a while. i was watching some of the dial meters. when romney was going through his five-point plan, his numbers went straight up. i do not think it was vague, from either of them. there was a lot of specificity and substance. >> it is the most substantive debate that i can remember, in terms of policy and plans, in a long time. maybe the bar is set so low it is not hard to get over it. but i was kind of surprised. >> i thought -- i guess, what is substance these days, especially in
. but critics say that he is not effectively ceded mr. do you think he does that were changes that initiative tomorrow night? >> i think the governor romney is going to lay out a compelling case our debt problems in the risk of enormous tax hikes on the population that would stagnate growth and put us on a path with increased spending. rising standards of living, and contrasting that with president obama's vision of a social welfare state, moving towards this competent socio- economic expectations. neil: you know the problem may be that mitt romney has, and i mean this in a positive way, he is too smart for words. in other words, he has the iq argument down, but not necessarily the ronald reagan approach out there. so he always sounds like he's walking and talking about it and never explaining about basic human being terms with choking on a 16 trillion-dollar debt means. so it gets to be an academic discussion. i suspect if you go that route, he will lose people in this debate and very well this election. what do you think? >> there is no doubt that mitt romney is very smart and we need someo
